Recipe by bmxmama

Mouthwatering Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas...what they are suppose to be! Please feel free to change any ingredient. Sometimes I use 8 oz of cream cheese too in addition to the sour cream..just for a little more creamy goodness! If I have leftover filling I use it for quesadillas.

I had to do so many subs because of where we live and the lack of selection LOL I used my homemade salsa ( hot and mild ) and salsa verde . Wiz it in the food processor to make a "enchilada" sauce. Hubby forgot to buy the montrey cheese so I used chedder and mozza. Also used canned jalepenos to replace green chilies. This was the first time we have had enchiladas and even with all the subs they were delicious. Will make again Made for PAC Fall 2009
